Summary:

Cinquante ans après la mort du très grand écrivain Aldous Huxley, son chef-d'oeuvre, Le Meilleur des Mondes, se lit et se relit, intemporel, visionnaire, absolument génial. 632 après Ford : désormais on compte les années à partir de l'invention de la voiture à moteur. La technologie et la science ont remplacé la liberté et Dieu. La vie humaine, anesthésiée, est une suite de satisfactions, les êtres naissent in vitro, les désirs s'assouvissent sans risque de reproduction, les émotions et les sentiments ont été remplacés par des sensations et des instincts programmés. La société de ce Meilleur des mondes est organisée, hiérarchisée et uniformisée, chaque être, rangé par catégorie, a sa vocation, ses capacités et ses envies, maîtrisées, disciplinées, accomplies. Chacun concourt à l'ordre général, c'est-à-dire travaille, consomme et meurt, sans jamais revendiquer, apprendre ou exulter. Mais un homme pourtant est né dans cette société, avec, chose affreuse, un père et une mère et, pire encore, des sentiments et des rêves. Ce " Sauvage ", qui a lu tout Shakespeare et le cite comme une Bible, peut-il être un danger pour le " monde civilisé " ?

Summary:

L'amour de la servitude ne peut être établi, sinon comme le résultat d'une révolution profonde, personnelle, dans les esprits et les corps humains. Pour effectuer cette révolution, il nous faudra, entre autres, les découvertes et les inventions ci-après. D'abord une technique fortement améliorée et la suggestion - au moyen du conditionnement dans l'enfance, et plus tard, à l'aide de drogues, telles que la scopolamine. Secundo, une science complètement évoluée des différences humaines, permettant aux directeurs gouvernementaux d'assigner à tout individu donné sa place convenable dans la hiérarchie sociale et économique. (Les chevilles rondes dans des trous carrés ont tendance à avoir des idées dangereuses sur le système social et à contaminer les autres de leur mécontentement.) Tertio (puisque la réalité, quelque utopienne qu'elle soit, est une chose dont on sent le besoin de s'évader assez fréquemment), un succédané de l'alcool et des autres narcotiques, quelque chose qui soit à la fois nocif et plus dispensateur de plaisir que le genièvre ou l'héroïne. Et quarto (mais ce serait là un projet à longue échéance, qui exigerait, pour être mené à une conclusion satisfaisante, des générations de mainmise totalitaire), un système d'eugénique à toute épreuve, conçu de façon à standardiser le produit humain et à faciliter ainsi la tâche des directeurs. Dans Le Meilleur des Mondes cette standardisation des produits humains a été poussée à des extrêmes fantastiques, bien que peut-être non impossibles. Techniquement et idéologiquement, nous sommes encore fort loin des bébés en flacon, et des groupes Bokanovsky de semi-imbéciles. Mais quand sera révolue l'année 600 de N.F., qui sait ce qui ne pourra pas se produire ? À tout bien considérer, il semble que l'Utopie soit beaucoup plus proche de nous que quiconque ne l'eût pu imaginer, il y a seulement quinze ans. À cette époque je l'avais lancée à six cents ans dans l'avenir. Aujourd'hui, il semble pratiquement possible que cette horreur puisse s'être abattue sur nous dans le délai d'un siècle. Du moins, si nous nous abstenons, d'ici là, de nous faire sauter en miettes.

Summary:

Voici près d'un siècle, dans d'étourdissantes visions, Aldous Huxley imagine une civilisation future jusque dans ses rouages les plus surprenants : un État Mondial, parfaitement hiérarchisé, a cantonné les derniers humains " sauvages " dans des réserves. La culture in vitro des foetus a engendré le règne des " Alphas ", génétiquement déterminés à être l'élite dirigeante. Les castes inférieures, elles, sont conditionnées pour se satisfaire pleinement de leur sort. Dans cette société où le bonheur est loi, famille, monogamie, sentiments sont bannis. Le meilleur des mondes est possible. Aujourd'hui, il nous paraît même familier...

Summary:

Aldous Huxley’s prophetic novel of ideas warned of a terrible future then 600 years away. Though Brave New World was published less than a century ago in 1932, many elements of the novel’s dystopic future now seem an eerily familiar part of life in the 21st century. These essays analyze the influence of Brave New World as a literary and philosophical document and describe how Huxley forecast the problems of late capitalism. Topics include the anti-utopian ideals represented by the rigid caste system depicted, the novel’s influence on the philosophy of “culture industry” philosophers Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, the Nietzschean birth of tragedy in the novel’s penultimate scene, and the relationship of the novel to other dystopian works.

Summary:

Wandering into Brave New World explores the historical contexts and contemporary sources of Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel which, seventy years after its initial publication remains the best known and most discussed dystopian work of the twentieth century. This new study addresses a number of questions which still remain open. Did his round-the-world trip in 1925-1926 provide material for the novel? Did India’s caste system contribute to the novel’s human levels? Is there an overarching pattern to the names of the novel/s characters? Has the role of Hollywood in the novel been underestimated? Is Lenina Crown a representative 1920s “flapper”? Did Huxley have knowledge of and sources for his Indian reservation characters and scenes quite independent of and more accurate than those of D. H. Lawrence’s writings? Did Huxley’s visit to Borneo contribute anything to the novel? New research allows substantive answers and even explains why Huxley linked such figures as Henry Ford and Sigmund Freud. It also shows how the novel overcomes its intense grounding in 1920s political turmoil to escape into the timelessness of dystopian fiction.

Summary:

The Brave New World covers the span of early American history, from 30,000 years before Europeans ever landed on North American shores to creation of the new nation. With its exploration of the places and peoples of early America, this comprehensive, lively narrative brings together the most recent scholarship on the colonial and revolutionary eras, Native Americans, slavery, politics, war, and the daily lives of ordinary people. The revised, enlarged edition includes a new chapter carrying the story through the American Revolution, the War for Independence, and the creation of the Confederation. Additional material on the frontier, the Southwest and the Caribbean, the slave trade, religion, science and technology, and ecology broadens the text, and maps drawn especially for this edition will enable readers to follow the story more closely. The bibliographical essay, one of the most admired features of the first edition, has been expanded and brought up to date. Peter Charles Hoffer combines the Atlantic Rim scholarship with a Continental perspective, illuminating early America from all angles—from its first settlers to the Spanish Century, from African slavery to the Salem witchcraft cases, from prayer and drinking practices to the development of complex economies, from the colonies' fight for freedom to an infant nation's struggle for political and economic legitimacy. Wide-ranging in scope, inclusive in content, the revised edition of The Brave New World continues to provide professors, students, and historians with an engaging and accessible history of early North America.

Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7, University of Koblenz-Landau (Anglistik), course: Ecocriticism, language: English, abstract: Dignity is mankind’s unique value, which gives humans the power of self-transcendence. This empowers them to be different to the natural nonhuman species (cf. Heyd 71). Science and engineering establish new ways and opportunities to accomplish the desire to improve humanity. By means of medical and genetic engineering man could be more intelligent, talented, beautiful, and crucially live a healthier and longer life without any particular effort. While this vision generates enthusiasm on the one hand, it triggers anxiety and scepticism on the other hand. Is gene alteration of human nature generally permissible and desirable? Will not authenticity and autonomy go astray when engineering makes us what we are? Are the social impacts sustainable or do we increase social and global inequality? A philosophical debate was raised about these and other questions in the recent years. The English term “Enhancement” gained acceptance as the collective term for diverse physiological, psychological, cognitive and emotional improvement of mankind. However, I will focus on the advantages, disadvantages and consequences of genetic alteration on humans from an ecocritical point of view. As ecocriticism is multifaceted I decided to take a closer look on the interaction between humans or more precisely, the exploitation of humans by humans. Therefore, I will apply an eco-Marxist approach to the novel which represents an anthropocentric ideology (cf. Benton, 28). The paper consists of three sections. Initially, I will explain the term ecocriticism. Secondly, I shall examine the advantages and the disadvantages of human genetic engineering with the example of Brave New World. Finally, the consequences of human genetic engineering are explored. Eventually, the question Why should we not play God? is clarified by an evaluation of the found out consequences.

Summary:

Six hundred years into the future, humans are bred by cloning, and "mother" and "father" are forbidden words. Originally published in 1932, Huxley's terrifying vision of a controlled and emotionless future "Utopian" society is truly startling in its prediction of modern scientific and cultural phenomena, including test-tube babies and rampant drug abuse.
